Blog / Artwalking in Durham this weekend!


by Teka Selman

This weekend will mark the spring Durham Art Walk, where performing and visual artists will take over the city for two days, opening their studios to the public and installing work in unexpected places.  As downtown Durham has grown, so has the Art Walk, and this year there is a full roster of artists, spaces and events to take in. At last count, over 50 artists had signed up, in addition to a plethora of spaces including Bull City Arts Collaborative, Golden Belt, Liberty Arts, the Hayti Heritage Center, and SeeSaw Studio, to name a few.  There are also concerts scheduled through the weekend at the CCB Plaza downtown, featuring local acts in every music genre imaginable.  Personally, I’m intrigued by the Durham Senior Divas ‘N Dude, a group of senior citizen cheerleaders who were the 2008 NC State Senior Games Champions.  How cool is that?

In tough economic times, there’s nothing like art and community to raise spirits and Durham’s Art Walk is free to the public.  The Art Walk runs Saturday 4/18 from 10am-5pm and Sunday 4/19 from 1-5pm.  For more information and a complete roster of participants and events, visit or click here.

    If the Nasher really wants to show that isn’t some stuffy old museum, but actually cares about the local artist community, they should install an Art-O-Mat (repurposed cigarette machine that dispenses art instead of death). Check out Art-O-Mat at

    note: I DO NOT work for Art-O-Mat, but I DO think these machines are cool as HELL

    note2: I live in Durham, and I want one in my town ’cause I’m lazy. The closet one is in Carrboro
